    Polaris Rebuild

    I am not even sure as there are no markings on it. It is one that is white and blue and has the mesh bag coming out the top.

    Covering up my Grecian Inground Pool

    Ok, so I moved and have a big Rear Grecian inground pool with a walk in spa end. There are two safety hand rails one on the spa end and other along poolside toward the deep end. Both are cemented in place and cannot be removed. Any suggestions on how to do my mesh style winter pool cover?

    Is it worth it??

    Don't use Salt Water with any metal. Being and Engineer and growing up in Cleveland, Ohio where they salt the heck out of the roads in winter and your car rots out taught me life lessons on this.

    Add salt water system to my above ground 24'round pool? Pros and cons

    Rusted Intex Frame

    That's what happened to mine when I switched to the salt water system. Salt water eats up everything and is not for these metal framed pools!

    Crack in Vari Flow Valve

    I just opened my pool again this year and found the same issue. My SP166T filter has a hairline crack at the pressure gauge tapping. From what I read online it is a common problem, though of course Hayward won't admit to it. I am trying JB weld with Silicone Sealant over it to see if that...
